Day 24 - Best quote

Uh. Really? Like anyone could pick one? As if. I'm really tempted by my love of the shiny and new, Justified, to pick Raylan's fabulous line "People are entitled to their interests, and I'm entitled to think those people are creepy." But honestly, I think, despite all the great lines from the Jossverse and some of my shiny new shows, and the amazing things said on The Wire (especially by Omar "a man got to have a code" Little), I come back to Al Swearengen and the quote in my icon, "Don't we face enough fuckin' imponderables?" He said it when they were putting up the telegraph cables, commenting on how messages were being sent through the air, but really, it applies to so much in this world, doesn't it? I don't think a week goes by I don't think of that line.

Heng dai, Swegen.

I just got another book to copyedit for a publisher I have really wanted to get a foot in the door with, and... it's on top of another book that is requiring a massive, heavy edit, and some web work, and another piece from the French woman I often work with. And I have to get my vid finished and sent to VVC tomorrow. I think I'll go kill myself now.

I'm not doing the meme but my favorite quote is from "The Lathe of Heaven". After Doctor Haber tells George to fix the population problem, George dreams away 2/3 of the population with a plague. When he realizes what he's done he says, "I've just killed six billion people".

Guess you've got your work cut out for you. Probably won't hear from you for a while...

I'm trying to squeeze in some fan time because otherwise, I think I might go mad. This one book is just... it's written by a newbie, and it is one of the heaviest edits I've ever done.

There is no way to choose 'best' quote, I concur. But anything from Al is a really good start.

Good luck getting your stuff done!

I miss Swedgen so much sometimes. I was looking for this clip on YouTube (didn't find it), and someone posted a medley of him swearing.

That's an awesome quote choice. :D

Yay for having work?

I know -- it's a question, isn't it? I feel like crying, but at the same time, it's been a really long dry spell.

No kidding! Except that this fiction one is my first for a particular publisher, and I've wanted for so long to get my foot in the door at a fiction house... so I feel like so much is riding on this it's crazy.
